For the ancient Greek poet, see Automedon. For the incident involving the WWII merchant ship Automedon, see the article: SS Automedon and the article: German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis. In Greek mythology, son of Diores, was Achilles' charioteer. In Homer's Iliad, Automedon rides into battle once Patroclus dons Achilles's armor, commanding Achilles' horses Balius and Xanthos. After Patroclus dies, Automedon is driven to the rear of the battle, where he tries to console the bereaved horses. Zeus intervenes, Automedon resumes driving the chariot, but cannot aid the Achaeans until Alcimedon agrees to be his driver, he repels an attempt on his life by Hector, Aeneas and Aretos, killing Aretos and taking his armor in the process. He appears in the Aeneid at line 477 of Book II, when the Greek forces break into the palace of Priam. Homer. Iliad, XVI, 145. Media related to Automedon at Wikimedia Commons

Narratio Prima

De libris revolutionum Copernici narratio prima referred to as Narratio Prima, is an abstract of Nicolaus Copernicus' heliocentric theory, written by Georg Joachim Rheticus in 1540. It is an introduction to Copernicus's major work, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, published in 1543 due to Rheticus's instigation. Narratio Prima is the first printed publication of Copernicus's theory. Copernicus, born in 1473 and well over 60 years old, had never published any astronomical work, as his only publication had been his translation of poems of Theophylact Simocatta, printed in 1509 by Johann Haller. At the same time, he had distributed his ideas among friends, with manuscripts called Commentariolus. In the 1530s, he was urged to publish by many, yet still hesitated when in 1539, Rheticus arrived in Frauenburg to become Copernicus' first and only pupil. Philipp Melanchthon had arranged for Rheticus to study with them. In September 1539 Rheticus went to Danzig to visit the mayor who gave Rheticus some financial assistance to publish the Narratio Prima.

This Narratio Prima, published by Franz Rhode in Danzig in 1540, is still considered to be the best introduction to Copernicus' De revolutionibus orbium coelestium. As the full title states, the Narratio was published as an open letter to Johannes Schöner of Nuremberg, it was bundled together with the Encomium Prussiae. During his two year stay in Prussia, Rheticus published works of his own, in cooperation with Copernicus, in 1542 a treatise on trigonometry, a preview to the second book of De revolutionibus. Under strong pressure from Rheticus, having seen the favorable first general reception of the Narratio Prima, Copernicus agreed to give the book to his close friend, bishop Tiedemann Giese, to be delivered to Nuremberg for printing by Johannes Petreius under Rheticus's supervision. Editions of Narratio Prima were printed in Basel, in 1541 by Robert Winter, in 1566 by Henricus Petrus in connection with the second edition of De revolutionibus.

The Bell (song)

"The Bell" is a song by musician Mike Oldfield, first released on the 1992 album Tubular Bells II. It was released as a single in April 1993 by Warner Music; the single features a restructured, shorter version of the album version of the song. "The Bell" is the finale of section one of Tubular Bells II and features a Master of Ceremonies, who introduces the instruments. The single has many versions of "The Bell", with different MCs, they include Billy Connolly, Carlos Finaly, Viv Stanshall and John Gordon Sinclair. The performer on the album was Alan Rickman; this was due to the final voice not having been picked. Some releases include an instrumental version and remixes; the instruments introduced are, in order: grand piano, reed & pipe organ, bass guitar, vocal cords, "two sampled electric guitars", "the Venetian effect", "digital sound processor" and tubular bells. "The Venetian Effect" refers to a characteristic mandolin technique, a type of tremolo known as bisbigliando, in which the effect of sustained notes is achieved by repetition.

One of the MCs from the single releases, Viv Stanshall, had been the Master of Ceremonies for the equivalent "Finale" piece of the original 1973 Tubular Bells, on which "The Bell" was based. The Connolly and Stanshall versions of the piece are available on the Warner compilation album The Best of Mike Oldfield: 1992–2003; the single was released in the UK with multiple cover artworks, each with its own track listing, with a version of Oldfield's trademark tubular bell logo in the foreground. The US release used the cover shown at the top of this article depicting a forest river. Other covers included a yellow field landscape, mountainous landscape and a cityscape with a green bell. Additionally "The Bell / Sentinel Restructure" cover features a blue background with a red inverted bell.

North Texas Mean Green football statistical leaders

The North Texas Mean Green football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the North Texas Mean Green football program in various categories, including passing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, career leaders; the Mean Green represent the University of North Texas in the NCAA's Conference USA. Although North Texas began competing in intercollegiate football in 1913, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1950. Records from before this year are incomplete and inconsistent, they are not included in these lists; these lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons: Since 1950, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and 12 games in length. The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972, allowing players to have four-year careers. Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002; the Mean Green have played in five bowl games since this decision, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2019 season. Total offense is the sum of rushing statistics, it does not include receiving or returns
